Workers at a Campari production site in Italy have gone on strike to protest against the drinks group's plans to close the plant.

Employees at Campari's site in Sulmona, southern Italy went on strike after learning that the company was to close the plant. Some 100 jobs could be under threat.

The strike took place on Wednesday (10 January), a day after Campari announced it was to close the plant, which principally produces soft drinks for the company.

The closure is another sign of the tough economic conditions in the south of Italy. Campari's move follows an announcement from Heineken that it would close a bottling plant on the Italian island of Sicily.

Campari plans to transfer the work carried out at its Sulmona site among its four other production facilities throughout Italy.

The company is working with union representatives to lessen the impact of the closure on its Sulmona employees.

A Campari spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by just-drinks today.


Sectors: Soft drinks, Spirits, Wine

Companies: Campari, Heineken
